Position Description:    

The Department of Physics at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) invites applications for a postdoctoral position in experimental high energy physics.

We seek candidates with expertise in collider physics to join the current effort on the CMS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN.

The CMU effort on CMS consists of John Alison and Manfred Paulini with emeriti faculty Thomas Ferguson, James Russ, and Helmut Vogel.

We expect the successful applicant to significantly contribute to CMU's involvement in the CMS Phase-2 upgrade for the High-Luminosity LHC, where CMU is setting up a module production center for the CMS high-granularity endcap calorimeter upgrade.

The successful applicant is also expected to play a leading role in using the Higgs boson to search for physics beyond the Standard Model.

Candidates also interested in exploring machine learning in particle physics through exploiting connections to CMU's School of Computer Science are especially welcome.

Other Carnegie Mellon research activities include rich programs in cosmology, medium- and high-energy physics, and machine learning.

Applications, including a curriculum vitae, publication list and statement of research interests should be submitted to

Candidates should also arrange to have three letters of recommendation uploaded to

For full consideration, all materials should be received by August 15, 2018.
